ZACHEVENESH2Conflict crafts character.

We are so pleased to welcome back Coach Zach Even-Esh of the Underground Strength Gym.  If this is your first time tuning into our conversation with Zach, you are in for a treat.  If you happened to hear our last episode with the wrestling and football strength and conditioning coach, you know that this man epitomizes passion.

Every time I hear him speak I’m reminded that some people were just born to coach.  Listening to Zach is like breathing a fresh breath of motivation to take on the tough clients, the losing teams, and continue to battle the bullshit.  Today’s episode is a bit of a commentary on the woes of our industry but as you’ll hear, the plight of the hard working coach is not without validation.

Sometimes parents and athletes themselves are their own worst enemies.  As the guys discuss, many uneducated folks don’t know what they don’t know.  Zach even makes a comment regarding the irony of the situation.  As he mentions, the people who should be listening to this podcast and others like it, aren’t.  The ones who are, probably need it the least.  Well, if you are listening tell the shitty coach at your gym to get in on it.



For the love of god, start following Zach Even-Esh on all forms of media.  You can find him on Facebook and IG under zevenesh.  Visit his website  to read his blog and check out his book.  He is a coach with a legacy and respected training philosophy.  It’s that simple.
